I went out with a 23 year old g/f of mine the other night to a bar/club. I never do this anymore being a stay at home mom, I don’t have the energy and at 28 seriously feel like I’m too old to be bopping about all night long with a drink in my hand. My energy level has majorly decreased in 3.5 years!
Anyway, we met up with a bunch of her friends, who I don’t know prior to this night and every so often my friend would run off to say hello to someone, or chat up another person in the group leaving me really with no one to talk to. Which is fine – however when I’m standing there like total idiot I tend to do those nervous twitch things……straighten my shirt, smooth my hair, check my cell phone, take a drink of my beer and so on.
Well come to find out 4 nights later when I meet back up with this friend of mine again, she tells me how one of her friends that was with that night thought I was so annoying flashing my engagement ring around like people coulnd’t tell I had it on or something. (My friend told me this when she was a little tipsy, hence it came out in all it’s truthfulness and glory…lol) I guess this friend of her thought that I was fixing my hair, drinking my beer and smoothing my shirt for the sole purpose of showing off my ring so that everyone knew I was engaged and to say "Hey look at my big ol’ rock"
Which by the way I have 11 diamond (8 of which are small and in the band chanel set) in my ring but the center is less one karat – it’s just new and very clean I guess.
I was so totally offended by this for some reason. I’m the total opposite of a person who shoves what she has in other peoples faces! I don’t even like going "I’m enggaed" to family and shoving my ring in their faces, when they WANT to see it. I wait to be asked to see it.
I just thought I would share this story with everyone because I’ve never really encountered this and honestly I didn’t even think of this as a possibility. I’ve gone back over my actions that night and I don’t recall doing anything that was obnoxious, and I didn’t even talk about being engaged to ANYONE! LOL…ugh…..
This isn’t keeping me up at night or anything – just annoyed so I thought I’d be annoyed on here…lol – as always!
